    Perfect stop for the first night we arrived on our Safari Honneymoon! The hotel was just what we needed after 20+ hours of flying. Clean room, large beds, modern and large bathrooms. The staff was wonderful and the food delicious! We only stayed here one night before we began our Safari but think it is the perfect place to stay upon arrival in Arusha.

    If traveling to Arusha consider the African Tulip before any other place. The small, exceedingly attractive boutique hotel with considerable character has only 29 rooms, but this also means that it is easy to meet the extraordinarily competent and professional staff. There is a sense of pride among the staff, and it is exhibited in so many helpful and thoughtful ways. Mr. Sharma, the manager, could not have been more helpful or gracious. He made me feel welcome and at home. The hotel’s restaurant serves a wide variety of excellent food, including several Indian vegetarian dishes, at reasonable prices. Even if you are not staying at the hotel, a visit to the restaurant is still in order. Please be sure to say hello to Christopher, one of the most professional, courteous, and friendly waiters I’ve ever had.

    The African Tulip is on Serengeti Road, about 100 yards from Old Moshe Road.

    I stayed in this hotel two years back. Its very neat and clean. I am a vegetarian and the chef cooked specially some very good Indian Punjabi food. The rooms are very nice and spacious. The staff is also very courteous. Great stay in a far and secluded place like this.

    Our tour companies, Africa 2000 Tours and Infinite Horizon, were the ones that suggested this hotel for our stay before and after our Meru hike and we were totally pleased. The service was outstanding and the rooms were extremely clean. We were pleasantly surprised on the large size of the rooms, including the upgraded mini-suite that we were given after our hike. The staff in all parts of the hotel were friendly and willing to help us with anything. The dining room offers some wonderful breakfast and dinner options. Internet is available in the business center near the lobby. We were able to have laundry done very quickly before we headed out to our safari. Would certainly recommend this hotel!

    I stayed at the African Tulip Hotel with a group of eleven people. The hotel accommodations were wonderful. We felt like we were in colonial Africa with staff ready to meet our every need. Hotel management was visible and ready to help when needed. Check-in was easy, rooms comfortable, bathrooms large and well equipped. We didn't use the pool but it was lovely. Laundry was quickly done and returned to our rooms. The dining room food was great with a emphasis on Indian cuisine. Dining room staff were professional and pleasant to be around. Overall, a great hotel. I can't wait to return.

    Room Tip: Both rooms were fine. The neighborhood can get noisy with construction during the day but overall things were quiet and pleasant.
